Your Demise - Ignorance Never Dies

Artist: Your Demise
Release: Ignorance Never Dies


1. Ignorance Never Dies

I won’t shy away from anything I’ve done
I’m so fucking proud of even my biggest mistakes
If I didn’t make them, I wouldn’t be where I stand now
You can act so fucking righteous
But you won’t ever learn until you fucking burn
At least once or twice in your life
And if you haven’t someday, it’ll all backfire on you

Ignorance is golden
Suffering is the path to happiness
Letting go is the one good feeling
That’s brought me to stand, where I stand today
And now’s the time to ask yourself why ignorance never dies

2. Burnt Tongues

Look me in the eyes, swallow your pride
Tell me what you think of me
Can’t you see all I need is a breath of fresh air
From the bullshit you keep feeding me
I know I’m a suspect as much as a victim
At least I’ve got the balls to admit
After all that I said
After all that I’ve done
I still know I’m this piece of shit

So go ahead and tell me
I can see it on your lips
You’ve always burned by the warmth from us all
And now your shoulders are fucking chipped
Spit your rage, speak your fire
Let the flames of hatred hit me
Burn me all you like
Let the flames lick higher
It’s what is left that I need

Now when was it ever about taking sides?
Everyone’s had enough of you
I’ve seen the monster you’ve become
After all the shit we’ve been put through

Everyone has to fucking talk
Everyone has to say their piece
No one can take a moment to feel what I feel
No one gets a chance to talk
No one gets to say their piece
Your burning tongue won’t let a single person get a word out

Now nobody’s left to burn
They’ve all packed and left you
Now I don’t know where to begin
Convincing you that you’re not who you think you are
You’re just your best friend’s enemy

Look me in the eyes
Swallow your pride
Tell me what you think of me
Can’t you see all I need is a breath of fresh air
From the bullshit you keep feeding me

3. Nothing Left But Regret

You took the year that I’ll never get back
For most of the time felt under attack
Down on my knees, lonely and scared
Close to defeat as our eyes never met

You played a game which made my life shit
But I saw it through as a relationship
Tried to get a reason, tried to get a clue
You carried on, it meant nothing to you

Do it, break my fucking neck
Do it, this time I won’t look back
Do it, slit my fucking throat
Do it, your life’s a fucking joke

So it meant nothing to you
Thought you’d see a year and thought you’d see it through
But it took too much, our time got too shit?
Maybe I meant nothing, no, not a little bit

Could be it’s worth it to let it all out
But it’s much too late as you just found out
You’ve taken up a great year
Taken up my fucking fresh air
You fucking bitch

Do it, break my fucking neck
Do it, this time I won’t look back
Do it, slit my fucking throat
Do it, your life’s a fucking joke
You fucking prick

How is it right and how is it fair?
I put my heart on the line you, left my mind impaired
You know I’ve got feelings, I don’t think you care
You’d fucking see it different if our thoughts were shared
Played a fucking game and you fucking won
So have it your way now, I’m fucking done
Down on my knees, lonely and scared
So do your fucking worst and break my fucking neck

4. Antipode

No love

Everything you ever took from me
Think you finally found what hurts
Could never see he’s coming back to me
You’d be the one to be there first

You’re broken down, there’s nothing you can do
Then you tell me you’re done and I resent you
For everything you’ve done
For you play the part but could never be broken

When I sold my soul
This took out everything from me
Now do I like her back
Trying to get to her friends but I ain’t as close
You try to smile Jessie Joe with no life in your face

‘Cause everything you ever took from me
You never made a moment since
It’s still hard to put out your spitting lies
But still your thoughts pretend

How was I not to flee
Does that mean the world to you
And I get back on the line
And here are you to say fuck you
It’s all for you

A mode of error gotta see from the top
So you spot everything you lost
When you’re down in your room with nothing to believe
Want some self respect, take your heart off your sleeve
‘Cause you gave your lease too faithfully
And then they straight out lazy
People don’t come that easy

But now you’re shit and down right fake
And you show the world who you really are
You have to talk to yourself
You miss everyone around you
Who you ever had
Your blood has truly stopped

6. Dreaming Of Believing

Exhausted, too tired to feel tired
This steam’s still blowing off
How the fuck do I think I can hold myself together
There’s no way to stay on top

My eyes are wired, my heart’s beating slow
My head’s confused, doesn’t know where to go
Twisting and turning to find a way out
But my head’s in a place where nobody knows

My head’s in the clouds, dreaming of believing
But these dreams don’t last that long
I can’t sleep, it makes me sink like an anchor
I’m deep into something that won’t feel wrong

Now my head’s coming out, I wonder what it’s all about
Try to figure what my body’s done to me
Lay my head on the pillow and hope for the best
Because when I think of you, I feel I might just sleep

Hopeless messages to a brain that can’t even process thoughts
How the fuck do I intend on making my choice?
I’ve now spent most of my life, dreaming of believing
When’s the time to step up and use my fucking voice?

I’m going out of my mind
Spent most my life under the weather, the other half under the thumb
As the world went rushing by, I told myself those same nonsensical lies
And all the while you were right here in front of my eyes

7. TF

Don’t worry, I’m always here for you
You’re everything I want to come back to
So this is what it’s like to feel alive
‘Cause everyone around me could about fucking die

No passing, no more energy
To even breathe a single word
It’s always the way, that you’ll soon find out
Someone’s not what they seemed at first

Sick of cold stares and freezing words
Dragged along till there’s nothing left
I’d given all that I had to someone nothing like you
This time I’m here till my last breath
I need someone to come back to
But most of all that person needs to be you

I feel I’ve wasted away what I cherish now
It’s been a long few years and I don’t know how
I’ve wasted a feeling I’m about to drown in with you
I need someone to come back to
But most of all that person needs to be you

This feels like a different heart
Because now this feels so real
Being miles away every single day
Never felt like such a thrill

It can feel so shit, but what can you do
As every time I’m back, I’m coming back for you
And that’s the way I want it after everything I do

I just hoped for that feeling of sanctuary
And when I look up, it’s looking back at me

9. The Clocks Aren't Ticking Backwards

It’ll creep up on you without a fucking sound
But I assure you now, these skies are falling down
Carry on as you are with everything you do
It’s just a matter of time till your world falls through

Take one second a day to make the most of your time
‘Cause you’ve been sucking at life and wasting most of mine
There’s not a minute a day when I can’t say
I’d wish the hours, the days, the moments away

But the clocks aren’t ticking backwards
Time’s gonna run out on you
The clocks aren’t ticking backwards
And I can’t see why they should give a fuck about you

It’s a brutal truth, we’re wasting away
From the very second we’re here
I’d be a liar and a coward if I didn’t admit
That when my time comes I really give a shit

So make your mind up quickly about wasting my time
‘Cause I can’t get to grips with how you waste your days
You’ve let yourself go, now you’re taking advantage
Of that brain you had, that’s now an empty space

The clocks aren’t ticking backwards
They don’t give a fuck about you
The clocks aren’t ticking backwards
They’ll let you do the things you do
They watch you waste your life away
Ticking the seconds and days right through
The clocks aren’t ticking backwards
And they don’t give a fuck about you

10. Feels Like There's Something Dark Inside

Every moment I spend at the end of the line
Feels like you’re hanging me out to dry
The things I’ve said I can no longer believe
‘Cause now several years I’ve tried
I’ve been the believer of the constant deceiver
Now I’m calling this my time
‘Cause clearly you have better things to do
And simply so have I
I’m down and I’m out of anything to believe in
But the life in front of me
It hurts that I know she’s a long way off
Because I’m stuck inside a false reality

Feels like something inside me
Is tearing down but it won’t come out
Feels like a fire inside me
Burning me down ’til I’m down and out
Feels like something’s hiding
It’s hidden away in the darkest space
Burning me down, ’til I’m down and out
I know it’s hitting you too, I can see it in your face

I’ve had illusions in front of me
Of how this really ought to be
But for those moments in time where I lived the high life
I realise it all don’t come for free
But now it’s dragging me down, the taste is fading away
Only just on the tip of my tongue
Still feel like a kid but everything I believe in
Doesn’t let me think I’m young
It’s been on my mind, seems a matter of ages
And why should it matter to me?
When I’ve worked so hard, brought myself to tears
Now I feel sold short for everything we’ve done

Feels like something inside me
Is tearing down but it won’t come out
Feels like a fire inside me
Burning me down ’til I’m down and out
Feels like something’s hiding
It’s hidden away in the darkest space
Burning me down, ’til I’m down and out
I know it’s hitting you, by the look on your face

So when will the time come to hang up our boots
And everything else this has accumulated?
I can’t believe my life is selling me out
Where my life long dreams turn to things I’ve hated

Bet you never knew that of the things I’ve had this has always been my thing
Now something out there has grabbed my attention
Don’t think I can stay much longer here
Everyone know that as soon as you feel that complete and utter chore
There’s just a layer of dust and burning ashes right beside me on the floor

Feels like something inside me
Is tearing down but it won’t come out
Feels like a fire inside me
Burning me down ’til I’m down and out
Feels like something’s hiding
It’s hidden away in the darkest space
Burning me down, ’til I’m down and out
I know it’s hitting you hard
Now I can’t stand to see your face

I feel I surpassed everything I’ve done and everything I’ll ever be
Now there’s only one thing for it
I’m locking the world out and throwing away the key

I’ve tried to run and hide
Feels like there’s something dark inside
I’ve tried my luck and made up my mind
Feels like there’s something dark inside
I think about this every day and night
Feels like there’s something dark inside
I’ll think about this ’til the end of time

Definitely know there’s something dark inside
Certain there’s something dark inside
Definitely know there’s something dark inside

11. All I Never Want To Be

Your regrets are purely yours, don’t tag this shit on me
Because you’re not even half of what I ever want to be

Let it be known as the truth
You make me fucking sick
Instead of thinking with your mind
You’ve been thinking with your dick

Of every single person that I ever expected of this
Let this be your only compliment
I never thought you’d make the list

Don’t ever say another thing
Don’t ever fucking look at me
Don’t ever breath another word
You’re all I never want to be

You’ve shown your true self to me
All I never want to be
Now’s the time we end you and me
You’re all I never want to be
And to this stage we’ve got, you had to see it through
And you’ll always be remembered for something I’d never do

But now you’ve gone and blown it
Sawing hopes clean apart
Nothing personal to me
But you broke an innocent heart

I know it’s no involvement or shit to do with me
But now you’re everything I’ve never, ever wanted to be

13. Black Veins

At the crux of it, everything I have
These feelings cold as stone
The everyday tyrants of a better life
I never feel they will ever leave me alone

I have only to fear fear itself
But I have everything to lose
How funny that the fear we own
Is the one we get to choose

Why can’t I choose something more?
Instead of fraying away at my mind
It’s like my greatest fears at which I used to laugh
Are always by my side

I’m not scared of dying, more so of living
As for once I’ve everything to lose
This happiness and morality
Infecting everything I can’t do

This feeling inside
It’s like a thickening pain
The bleeding inside
The blood in these black veins

Just a moment alone, enough time with myself
When I can’t bide my time with anyone else
This bleeding of thoughts, and broken memories
Is drowning in blood that I never need

The feeling inside, it’s thickening pain
Anxiety inside of me
I hope I don’t feel again

The feeling inside
It’s a thickening pain
The bleeding inside
The blood in these black veins

14. Blood Ran Cold

It doesn’t seem that long since you changed your fucking song
My heart grew fond of you and now for everything you do
Used to take as gospel every word you say
I used to have respect for you but you disgraced your name

You took your chances, now it’s my fucking turn
You lost our self respect
And took the piss out of everyone in your path
So this one’s for you

Now that I’ve come not to care, it’s true you’re going nowhere
And maybe you’re safe at home, but you’re empty forgotten and alone
And if I cut my wrists, I’m sure the blood will run out pure
And if I cut your wrists, I’m sure the blood won’t run out pure

The colours blue and gold
The blood ran cold…
